Imatest results: Nikon Z7, Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 and 24-70mm f/4

The Australian site PhotoReview published the Imatest results for the Nikon Z7 camera, Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 and 24-70mm f/4 S lenses: Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 S lens ( $846.95 ) Imatest results: “Technologically, we expected the 35mm f/1.8 S lens to out-perform its F-mount equivalents but we haven’t reviewed the Nikkor AF-S F-mount equivalent. It certainly did better than the Tamron SP AF 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD lens we reviewed in November 2015.” ( source ) Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens ( $996.95) Imatest results: “Although the highest resolution measured in out tests is not quite as high as that of the 35mm f/1.8 S lens, it’s not far behind in most of the features we tested. Unfortunately, once again, we haven’t reviewed an equivalent Nikon F-mount lens we can compare it with.” ( source ) Nikon Z7 ( $3,996.95 ) Imatest resolution vs ISO settings: The body size and ergonomics.

Second part interview with Nikon on the Z mirrorless

Digitalkamera.de  updated their initial interview with Nikon on the Z mirrorless cameras ( see all previous Z interviews ). You can use the AF Nikkor 14mm f/2.8D ED lens with the FTZ adapter on the Nikon Z6/Z7 (it is not included in the preliminary list of incompatible lenses) however, fisheye lenses (6mm f/5.6, 7.5mm f/5.6, 8mm f/8, 10mm f/5.6) are generally not compatible. The Nikon Z7 currently doesn’t offer menu option “negative digitization” like the D850 for using the ES-2 adapter .

Some Tamron Di/Di II lenses will not work properly with the Nikon Z7, Tokina is still testing their lenses

Tamron issued a notice that some of their Di/Di II series lenses will not work properly on the Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera with the FTZ adapter. A reader did some quick testing and sent me this list: Problems: Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2  is incompatible (error: press shutter release button again) Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 has exposure problems (screen stutters between a normal and darker than normal exposure, photos seem fine) No problems noted so far: Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD Let’s start a list of Nikon Z compatible (and not-compatible) third party lenses – please add your feedback in the comments section and I will create a list. Tokina is currently testing their lenses and the results from the  Tokina 24-70mm Ff/2.8 AT-X Pro FX are optimistic: Here is the official notice from Tamron: Notice about compatibility for Nikon Z7 with Tamron lenses Dear users and potential purchasers of Tamron interchangeable lenses.

The latest Nikon Z6/Z7 reviews

The latest Nikon Z6/Z7 reviews: → Nikon Z7 review by Ming Thein : “On an absolute scale, what we have here is not revolution but thorough evolution – much as the D3 was in its day. And as the D3, this represents a massive quantum leap of innovation for conservative Nikon; though the Z7 isn’t the second coming of sliced Jesus there are enough solid improvements over the D850, and not too many compromises (some of which are firmware-fixable). For a first try, it’s remarkable effort
